The Post WATCH ONLINE

The focus will be the scandal of 1971, when, according to the decision of The Washington Post editor, Ben Bradley (Tom Hanks) and publisher Catherine Graham (Meryl Streep), secret documents were published by the US Department of Defense. The so-called "Pentagon Documents" were not intended for the press, but were handed over to journalists by former State Department official Daniel Ellsberg, opposed to the war in Vietnam. It followed that the administration of President Lyndon Johnson was lying to the public and Congress about US participation in the Vietnam war, and Richard Nixon's administration secretly took action to escalate the military conflict. Later, representatives of the government tried to stop the publication of documents, and Assistant Attorney General William Renquist even referred the case to the Supreme Court, which, however, ruled in favor of the newspaper.
